- Collection of Personal Information
If you browse any WOWSEA Brands website, you may generally do so anonymously without providing any personal information. However, there are cases in which we may ask you for personal data. For example, we will occasionally conduct on-line surveys to better understand the needs and profile of our visitors. In addition, we may request personal information when you register to receive additional information regarding our products and services, download manual or software, sign up for a newsletter or send us a question. In such cases, the personal information we request will typically consist of: your title, first and last name, mailing address and email address, as well as certain billing and credit card information for purposes of effecting payments. Additionally, we may provide you with the option of submitting information such as your birthday, anniversary date, information regarding the size and composition of your household and your preferred retailers, all of which are intended to enhance your experience, and inform you, of our product and service offerings Even if you choose not to give information we request, you can still visit most of the WOWSEA Brands website, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services.
As noted above, when you place an order for a product or service, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number and expiration date. This personal information is required so that we can process and fulfill your order, send an order or shipping confirmation, as well as notify you of your order status. All Internet transactions with WOWSEA Brands are performed on a secure server that encrypts your credit card information to ensure it is not read by unauthorized third parties.

If you do provide us with consent to share your information with other third party companies, we may share your information with third party companies who offer products and services that may be of interest to you. These companies may then contact you directly with product or sample offers, personalized offers and information, or to ask for your feedback on products and programs that they think may be of interest to you.
We may share your personal information with our third party service providers on a need-to-know basis. We engage third party service providers to perform certain services on our behalf.

We may disclose personal information without notice to you in response to a subpoena or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to respond to an emergency situation. We also may disclose personal information as part of a merger or acquisition.
